What are #MSFTEduChat Canada TweetMeets?

Every month, Microsoft in Education Canada organizes a social event on Twitter for Canadian educators. The hashtag we use is #MSFTEduChat. A team of topic-specialists prepares and hosts these TweetMeets together. They craft questions around a certain topic and share them on Twitter, then our digital attendees strike up a conversation around the topic.
All you have to do is keep an eye on that hashtag and contribute any insights, ideas, or expertise to the conversation. Or you can just listen in. It's a great way to connect and learn!

The easiest way to keep on top of the conversation is by using TweetDeck. Our friend Marjolein Hoekstra created a quick tutorial to help her OneNote Education TweetMeet attendees. It's a great resource to help you follow the hashtag #MSFTEduChat during the conversation.


We can't wait to hear what Canadian educators have to say heading into the new school year. Join us on Twitter on Tuesday, August 28th at 7:00 PM EDT. If you have any questions, connect with the Microsoft in Education Canada team on Twitter by sending a message to @MicrosoftEduCA.

We'll see you at the chat!
